The COVID pandemic indirectly inspired Karen Kuff-Demicco’s new exhibit “Walking Down the Street” at the Cooperative Gallery 213 October 7-29th, 2022. Karen asks the question, “Have you ever had times when you are walking down a street, driving a car, or just going about your business when random thoughts enter your mind? You see or hear something that triggers memories or just captures your imagination. My show is based on these moments of inspiration.”
The sculptures, prints and paintings in the show represent her actual local travels during COVID and are explorations and reactions to the abstract, magical and real world. “Walking Down the Street” opens First Friday 5-9 pm and throughout the month of October Fridays. 5-8 pm and Saturdays 11 am- 3 pm.
“The work in my show was all created during COVID, a time when I did not physically go far away. These sculptures, prints and paintings represent actual travels; explorations and reactions to the abstract, magical and real world.”
